For all of our American friends we hope you have a lovely Thanksgiving with your family and friends :-)

Welcome to another week on the Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge !! Thank you for joining us for the Sketch Challenge and we hope you will all join us again this week too :-)
We will be back soon with the name of the lucky winner of the $50 Voucher !! :-)
This week the challenge is ,,,,,,,,


We are showcasing TIM HOLTZ/RANGER Products this week. You don't have to use them to join in but if you have some we would LOVE to see them used :-)
As always Simon Says Stamp will be giving away $50 voucher to shop at the fabulous Simon Says Stamp Store!

I really like the chalkboard effect and in the recent Tim Holtz Creative Chemistry 102 Online Class he made a video to create this look using Frosted Crystal EP and I love this technique ! 

As I used the chalkboard technique I thought I should make a blackboard for this cute snowman so I downloaded this fab design from the Silhouette Studio store. the little pieces of chalk are in fact bits of toothpicks coloured white with a marker.

The snowflakes are new Simon Says Stamp exclusive dies and I smothered them with glossy accents before smooshing them around in a pool of distress glitter.

I have just realised that a gem has fallen off the branch on the tag, there should be 3  :-) Will have to glue them on better with glossy accents :-)

Thanks for looking :-) Our lovely GD Jess Larsen, and the DT have made some gorgeous cards so please hop on over to the Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge to see them :-)

ABC Christmas 'X' for out of the BoX

Hi all, I hope all is well with you and hope your Christmas preparations are now in full swing :-) I have my puddings steaming on the stove and am listening to Michael Buble so am getting right into the spirit of things, and so early in the morning ! :-)

This week it's Michelle's turn to choose the theme over on the ABC Christmas Challenge ,,,,,

'X'for Out of the BoX' 

so we would love to see your non-square creations!  

 We have two fantastic sponsors for this challenge:

Prize: 2 Shape EZ templates of winners choice. 

Prize: 2 Digi images of winners choice.

I went for a super quick and easy option and made a cracker on my Silhouette Cameo :-)

I cut it out of plain white card then used a new Simon Says Stamp Snowflake Stencil and some Stormy Sky Distress Ink to create the design. I then spayed with shine and it looks really fab and shimmery IRL :)

Thanks for looking, the DT have made some fabulous creations for you to see so please hop on over to the challenge blog to see them.
